“Nancy Azara has developed a signature vocabulary of materials (carved wood, paper), colors (red, black, silver, gold) and forms (human, tree and organic in-betweens), which she deployed in a variety of complex and simple sculptural formats… Azara coats the raw material with pigment and/or metallic leaf so that its natural color and grain are concealed. The result is a certain tension - as if the wood wants to burst out of this jacket - that heightens the expressionism of the carving and coloring.” - Janet Koplos, Art in America (full review)
